    This would be excellent, but it would mean we need to find an opener.

    Williamson has a great mind for the game and is really mature for his age, but Southee is bowling really well and loves a drink and a root, so he's obviously got the inside running.

    Reports mentioning 'consistently above the 140kph mark', odd for a non-TV game.

    We'll see on Friday anyway. If he does the business in the T20Is he may find himself in the ODI team at some point.

    He must be stoked to bowl on something that isn't Colin Munro Park.

    His ball to Papps a few weeks ago was pretty much the perfect delivery to the front foot oriented right hander.

    Mitchell McClenaghan vs. Wellington - YouTube

    Also got Murdoch hanging that twisted left wrist and vertical bat out beautifully. Athough, who doesn't.

    All right, since it's obvious this series is being viewed as a trial for the next limited overs allrounder, to get this thread moving lets place our bets.

    Anderson - highest ceiling of the three, and potentially world class in both departments. Unfortunately he's on the floor of the room with the very high ceiling (to steal a quote from PEWS).
    Munro - The most limited of the three due to his batting technique and his bowling is the weakest of this lot. His eye is as good as either and he makes hitting look easy. He has also been the most effective of the three with the bat across all formats so far.
    Neesham - Equal with Anderson with the bat in terms of raw potential, but has been more effective with bat and ball. He is currently the most effective bowler of the three.

    Batting (on results) - Munro, Neesham, Anderson
    Batting (on potential) - Anderson = Neesham, gap, Munro
    Bowling (on results) - Neesham, daylight, Anderson = Munro
    Bowling (on potential) - Anderson, daylight, Neesham, daylight, Munro

    I'm going to place my bet on Jimmy Neesham. He combines ability with progress.

    I'm expecting to be told to taste it over the newest candidate for Genuine Fast Bowler Who Doesn't Break Down as well. I have a hunch McClenaghan will enjoy South African conditions quite a lot with his style of bowling.

    Not going to taste it ftr. I was right in 2009. It's 2012 now.

    Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face

    No rain expected for Friday's game at Durban. At least the series can get off to a good start.

    This is a man who used to smoke reefer in his hotel room on tour reporting cricket matches, not bothering to go to the ground unless absolutely necessary. Think he's having another baked moment even bringing that nonsense up.

    What a dreadful tour that was. That article, though, highlights that Cumming really should've had more opportunities, especially when you consider the merry-go-round of openers that followed.
